Hello, summer vacation! | Speedkin

Hello, summer vacation!

Duke got a notion one day this week to build a seesaw.  He scrounged a 4 x 4, some nails, and an appropriate log and designed & built it all by himself.  Voila!

Charlie is turning out to be the Rainman of riding mowers.  A slightly drunken Rainman but still…

In the past couple of days, with help from the short people, I’ve planted a few hundred flower seedlings here and there, along with Painted serpent melon, Rampicante Tromboncino, and green, grey, and yellow summer squash.  Weeding is a never-ending chore, as is hilling the potatoes.  I managed to make & place cages for the 47 sweet peppers I planted out a few days ago.  Still no tomatoes or chiles planted out since the rain has still be at it.  We’re going to try to force some progress in that department this weekend, one way or another.  The time has come!

    I love to see your Short People and how inventive they can be. They will have so many happy memories of their childhood. Seems like these days most kids are inside in front of the game console and that makes me feel sad to think of how much they’re missing. Rock on!!

    I agree with Ilene.

    They still rot their brains out on TV and video game crap but, if I had my way, I’d do away with it all. Steve’s a sucker for that stuff so I have to resort to evil plotting to save their brains as best I can. ;-)
